Danai Gurira to Appear in Next ‘Avengers’ Movie
Though she has yet to appear as Okoye in the upcoming Black Panther film, actress Danai Gurira has already booked another gig as the character in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. For those of you not familiar with the comic-book character, Okoye is the leader of the Dora Milaje, a fearsome group of female warriors who watch over the royal family of the fictional African country of Wakanda.
Fans got their first look at Okoye last week when Marvel Studios unveiled the official trailer for Black Panther. The two-minute teaser reportedly generated over 89 million views during its first twenty-four hours of release.
Anxious fans will have to wait to see what Danai brings to the role of Okoye, as both Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War aren’t slated to be released until 2018. However, if your Danai itch needs to be scratched right now, feel free to check her out as Afeni Shakur in this week’s release of the Tupac biopic All Eyez on Me.
